I've bought this old windsurfer but am interested in knowing what brand this is

i don't have the mast foot and will eith make something, buy one if someone has one or just flog off as a SUP. It's well made, appears to be Fibreglass not epoxy quite heavy but a production board not a custom for the 70's. One owner, parents bought it in nsw somewhere, possibly around Lake Macquarie newcastle for their son Who said it was one design brand.? Boom plastic ends have the number TK508B and TK503B. Centreboard and fin box have a similar number starting with TK - 103 and 303?

Oh thanks. That name came up somewhere else in a peconic puffin article april 2007. The board pictured was a little different and blue but someone mentioned they made two different boards. Can't find any images though on google for this board. I'm guessing it was early 80's at the latest and maybe late 70's? Hey you don't have the mast step floating round in your old toy box do ya?

Hey D, I sold that board for a tidy profit, only bought it out of curiosity. It was bloody heavy but pretty solid and in good condition. I must say it glided pretty well in light winds and even when supping. Very stable with the wide tail. A good learners board with a very good non slip deck

I remember , mine had bugger all grip left on it. Bloody heavy alright. Definitely needed two people to lift onto roof of car.
Must be in good nick for one of those that old.
I really didn't look back, going to One Design from there. That thing with a bit of a blow, and the older style of rig really made a goose of me a few times while learning.
